We had released Eposo WordPress Theme - First version in mid-2018. Since then it is working rock solid and catering various type of clients and purposes.
The primary goal of Eposo WordPress Theme was to build content curation and directory websites. But we've seen that many people are using it for various purposes, from book club to a dribble alternative.
During this time, we have received many suggestions and feature requests. It becomes more than just a content curation theme. And to cater to all people, we felt a need for a significant update.
It's 2020, and many things have changed since 2018. The spread of Gutenberg blocks, WordPress's inclination on react, Bootstrap 5 meta release.
We feel it is the right time to upgrade it.
We have started working on the new version called Eposo beta. It is not just one theme. Infact, Eposo is now going to be a collection of themes and to cater to various requirements with add-on plugins and widgets to supercharge your stack.
